Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Holiday. Would like to remind you of the upcoming Illinois Rally in September.
Elaine & I will not be hosting the Illinois Rally in Chatham. We are leaving our position as Illinois Heartland Chapter Leaders and are no longer a Heartland Owner. We have made many new friends through Heartland from Canada and United States and enjoyed our time with the club.
We have been very busy this past year with family and our work, hope to get back into the Heartland Club in the future.

Gerry & Debbie Atkinson the North Central Regional Leaders will take over the Illinois Rally, and Im sure it will be a great one.

Thank You Everyone-And Safe Travels-
Paul & Elaine

Paul and Elaine,
Thank you for your time as Illinois chapter leaders and hope to catch you when we are down there. Unfortunately we all have times when we need to step back and take care of things other than RViing. We will be posting more as time nears.

Paul and Elaine, thank you for your service to the club. As Gerry said, we must take care of ourselves first and sometimes that means giving up things that we love (RV'ing). Stella and I enjoyed meeting you several years ago and wish you all the best in the future.

Good Morning,

My wife and I are new Heartland travel trailer owners, got our trailer just a couple of weeks ago. I was signing up for the Heartland Owners Club and located this thread about the rally. Our first camping trip in the trailer was to the Double J in Chatham and we are planning to go back. Rally looks like a perfect time for us to go back and meet other Heartland owners. Is there anything I need to do to be included in the Rally, other than get our Reservations with the campground.

Great site Mike I couldn't have picked a better one myself. We wanted to be there but as some of you know I had an accident and broke my right ankle and tibia so I'm wearing a cast for 3 months at least, I also broke my left foot and it's in a boot for 1 month. Hopefully we will make it next year.

Do you remember the movie Misery with James Caan ? Was just thinking ,maybe Jon was not telling me the right story of his so called accident.

I have traveled up to Springfield MO and staying at the fairgrounds for two weeks until this rally. While I was here I thought I might take a trip to the Double J RV Park and see what it is like.

I used the waypoint that is provided on my Garmin and ended up in the middle of a housing district. The address on the Waypoint is correct but the location is wrong. I don't know how many have been to the Double J RV Park but just encase you plan to use the waypoint on the GPS I would suggest you use this Long/Lat... 39.65710, W-9.64794, or key in the address 9683 Palm Rd, Chatham, IL.

I am using the CN North American NT 2019.10 Map.

Interesting think thing I found.. If you look up the park under RV Parks it is wrong, but if you look it up under Camps & RV Parks it is correct. What a deal.

I have reported this error to Garmin and hope when the next map comes out it will be corrected....
